This week we wanted to take a moment to get to know Amy Mills, Executive Broker for Steve Fineberg & Associates.
Q: Amy, where are you from?
A: I was born in Chicago and lived in the suburbs of Chicago before moving to Breckenridge, Colorado in 2000. After spending 5 years in Breckenridge I moved to Bentonville.
Q: How long have you worked for Steve Fineberg & Associates?
A: I came on board in January of 2006, so just over six years.
A: I saw how easy it was and knew I could do it better than the other guys Steve had working for him :) I do enjoy working as a commercial real estate broker and looking back it was a great decision for me. I enjoy working with my clients and helping them reach their goals. I love walking into a business that I helped find a site for.
Q: What do you like to do outside of work?
A: I love to travel! When I lived in Colorado my husband and I spent a lot of time at Zion National Park in Utah. I also have been to Prague, which I would love to go back to. I also love Italy. I was lucky enough to spend some time there before I got married and again can't wait to go back. There are so many amazing places in this world and one of the reasons I work so hard is so I can afford to spend more time in these amazing places.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant?
A: In NWA if I don’t have my son with me I like Table Mesa. If it’s a family night we enjoy going to Mellow Mushroom. I still miss the happy hour appetizers and martinis at Blue River Bistro in Breckenridge. In Chicago there are too many favorites to list but would love a Frankly Yours Gyro or a Lou Malnatis deep dish pizza right now!
Q: What are you most proud of outside of work?
A: My son Jake, he’s amazing. He is smart, loving and adventurous. Being around him makes me want to be a better person and I am amazed that he is my kid. He recently wanted to learn about gardening. While I am not much of a gardener I did enjoy teaching Jake about it and loved how proud he was. Now we have an abundance of tomato and cucumber plants to share with others.
Q: What is a random fact about yourself?
A: My husband and I moved to Colorado to work for one season at a ski resort and ended up staying for five years because we loved the area so much. In the winter I drove a snowmobile up to the restaurant I managed and in the summer I got to drive my jeep up the mountain to work. Colorado is such a beautiful state, and there is always so much to do there.
Q: What is your life motto?
A: I often think of this quote from Mark Twain: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Thank you, Amy, for sharing about yourself! You are an amazing part of our team!
